PLANTATION SPINNER MANUFACTURING COMPANY.
One of the branches of industry that would have been, but was not, was the “Plantation Spinner Manufacturing Company.” It was organized June 17, 1867, and on the 24th, the election of officers took place. Col. George B. Corkhill was chosen President, J.B. Coat, Secretary and Treasurer, and Hon. James Harlan, Col. A.H. Bereman and N. Hoyt, Directors.
The Company never did any business.
A gold stock exchange was once set on foot in this place, but the life of the enterprise did not extend beyond the undertaking.
